Worked fine on my Windows 7 x64, but it is always a good idea to create a system restore point first before trying out any new software. Looks like it works on Windows 8 too!

    What’s out there to clean up the text? Those drop shadows make the text blurry IMHO. I want something that will give me nice, crisp clear text and choice of fonts. Anything anybody?

    There is no setting anywhere that I can see to make the text move to the side of the icons…
